Question Z97 & 16-lanes cpu. Is it possible to SLI and still have wifi card+m.2 ssd?

Sorry, I can't answer the question you asked.
I think it is moot.
Unless you are only interested in seeking synthetis fps benchmark records, sli is not a good idea.
Your gaming experience will be better with a single good graphics card.
Dual gpu is prone to screen tearing, stuttering and will not be supported in an increasing number of games.

My i7-4790k got 16 lanes and my MSI Z97 Gaming 5 board is supporting SLI
Is it possible to get both a 2 way SLI in my motherboard with one of my PCIe slots is used for the TP-Link Archer TX3000E WiFi6 network card?
Also, my motherboard m.2 slot is currently used with my Samsung 970 Pro

look possible. the 16 for the gpu is from the cpu.
the other is from the chipset

Yes it is possible and your sli will take up x8/x8 if supported by Mobo and everything else goes to chipset and if your m.2 is ssd rather than nvme(which is usually pcie 3.0x4) it won't saturate as chipset is connected to cpu with 3.0x4 pcie lanes and nvme will saturate and all other data through it will slow down.
